I have an Albino Socolofi that was being bullied by another fish so I put him in another tank. Of course, he was then bullied even more in the new tank so I took him out and put him in a 10 gallon tank to figure out what to do with him and as soon as i did that he became twisting, twirling, doing somersaults none stop. He eventually stopped about an hour later but then started up the somersault about a couple hours later. He did this non stop throughout the evening and this morning he is still doing it. I'm assuming he was injured in some one during the bullying but how do I stop this? Anyone seen this before? I have no other fish doing this and I've recently checked the water of all my tanks and they are at the appropriate levels.

Probably too late for this advice, but you need to euthanize it.
My favorite method is to put the fish in a bag or bucket with enough water to keep
it comfortable for an hour or two, then put it in the freezer. Fish will go to sleep in
about an hour or less.
